Who is the Horizon test suitable for?

The Horizon test is suitable for all couples who want to gain valuable insight into their likelihood of passing on genetic conditions to their future children. The test screens for cystic fibrosis, which is very common, spinal muscular atrophy or Duchenne / Becker muscular dystrophy – and many, many more.

It is possible to screen for a total of 274 genetic conditions.

Horizon can be performed at any time before or during pregnancy. Some people may want to know their carrier status before pregnancy to inform reproductive decisions.

You must be at least 18 to have the Horizon test performed.

The benefit of learning more through Horizon

If you and your partner are carriers, it is possible to establish whether your little one is affected through a placenta biopsy or amniocentesis.

If you are planning your pregnancy (and you know your carrier status), you can seek help to avoid having a baby who will be affected by any condition you or your partner might carry.

Horizon needs only be performed once in a lifetime.
